Review and Tasting

Sampled on 08/04/2013

Appearance

Clear, dark coppery amber.

Aroma

Sherry is very evident with dark cacao, dried fruit, toffee-apple-like, almost calvados aromas along with Brugal’s signature mocha coffee.

Taste

Full-bodied with sweet vanilla, toffee and liquorice balanced by dry cinnamon spiced oak.

Aftertaste

Fruity toffee notes continue into the finish with drier oaky tannins.
